How do you feel about colour in your home?
Would you go bold & introduce a vibrantly hued velvet sofa? Or perhaps you prefer to add colour in a more subtle way - perhaps with a fun print like these by @margoinmargate?

Our house renovations are now back in full swing, with grand plans to have finished the interior of the house by the end of the year. The two spare bedrooms are next to be tackled, & I’m particularly excited for the box room. I had originally planned to make this room into an office space, but I’m enjoying working at the dining table, looking out over the hills. So now I’m planning on dedicating the room to one of my favourite things: reading.
I’ve always wanted a library in my home, but I don’t think I’ll ever own a house big enough for such an extravagance. I’m planning on coming close though, lining two full walls of our box room with shelves that I will fill with my many, many books. The only piece of furniture in the room will be a day bed piled with blankets & cushions - perfect for guests, but also creating a cosy little nook where I can escape to read. •
Pictures hopefully coming soon!
#happymonday 🤗 Jetzt hab ich mich schon auf ein paar hyggelige 🌧 Tage gefreut aber das Verwöhnwetter geht weiter.
Zwar nur 7 Grad grad aber 🌞 satt, laut Wetterapp die ganze Woche. Wenn der Winter nur halb so winterlich wird wie der Sommer sonnenreich war..... #jessesmariaundjosef 💙🙏
Happy Monday everyone! As promised, I’ve shared more of the beautiful home of @houseofgreylondon on the blog today. For me, this place is everything a home should be: calm, understated and welcoming, with considered colours and textures and plants everywhere. It really is proof that good interior design is as much about mood and wellbeing as aesthetics.
Definitely made a bigger mess than when I started and took some things a part I’m not sure if it was a good idea yet [sorry Jake 😬]. I just got carried away 🤷🏻♀️. I don’t recommend sanding inside your house but it was way faster than by hand which made it all worth it.
Park City Showcase Homes 2018- Other Bedrooms, and Basement theatre/family Rooms. One important part of starting a project is really knowing who your client is. If the home is for sale, that becomes a little more tricky because your client is unknown, and instead you are trying to create something that appeals to the masses. The key to doing this is three things- cohesiveness of spaces, simplicity, and a neutral palette. If the home has motifs, textures, colors and product selections carried in multiple places throughout the home, you are creating cohesiveness. Simplicity is created by being true to a style, but not overdoing finish details and crazy design features. And a neutral palette will allow many end users to envision their own personal items and story to come to life in the home. The key is just ensuring that your palette works well together. There are so many different grays, whites and tans. Doing the wrong ones together creates a scheme that just feels off and will not help your cause in selling the home. As you will notice from all the pictures of this home- all three of these things exist. The result is an amazing home with design features that make sense, a color palette that is neutral and livable, and spaces that flow from room to room to room!! All in all, completely FAB! 😍
